Finished our trip to France with a very good meal at the Swan

We had the 15€ menu and enjoyed every mouthful! Washed down with a beer and red wine and all served by a very friendly waitress who despite our poor French was chatty and patient with us. There are a number of restaurants in the vicinity with similar menus but we were very satisfied with the... read more

I honestly cannot understand why people have left bad reviews about this restaurant... Went to Boulogne today as a last tap on my recent trip to France. Walked around the town centre and took a peek at the menus that were on display for all the restaurants. Eventually decided to sit at Le Swan. I must say that we were... More

Found this place quite by chance. We were staying in Boulogne-sur-Mer overnight on a just out of season monday in June before heading for the ferry back to Blighty the next day and needed somewhere to eat as our hotel restaurant wasn't open. As many restaurants were shut we decided to go in the next place that looked ok, and... More

Absolutely disgusting food with a moody waitress. We had a family gathering in the north of France and we were not welcomed. Food: the onion soup was tasteless without enough onions and cheese (we are French and this is a classical dish you cannot miss). Frozen fries, over cooked pasta. Everything was not really fresh, ready made food. What a... More

This restaurant really surprised us in a good way! We chose it first, because the staff at the door was very friendly and welcoming. The menu was interesting and we both found very nice choices for us. The food was incredibly tasty. Don't miss the merengue lime pie! It is delicious.

Was here with my mother who walks with a stick and right from arrival staff couldn't have been more helpful in assisting her up the stairs but in a polite and discreet manner. Seated at an ample table , service was both friendly and timely without being overbearing or rushed!! The food was delicious....from the starters through to dessert, the... More

Me and Mrs M took our daughter and her American boyfriend here for a late lunch on 20th March. We visited a month earlier with our son and daughter and were well impressed. So this time we thought we would treat the Texan..... Got to say that the Skate that came as part of the fish "Plat de Jour" was... More

We had a three course evening meal, having wandered up to the old town. The restaurant is located on the Rue de Lille, with plenty of competition for your dining Euro. However my wife and I made the right choice of restaurant. The food was fantastic, and unlike so many Parisian experiences the staff were friendly and attentive. At less... More

The restaurant was full for lunch time but we managed to get a table for 4 just as some people were finished eating and were leaving. We had the top menu at 25 Euro and it was very good. I also managed to changed one of the starters to moules without any problem and it was fantastic. The starter and... More
